A Better Finder Attributes 5 is the ultimate file tweaking tool for Mac OS X.

Change EXIF Digital Photo Shooting Timestamps at Will

A Better Finder Attributes 5 allows you to manipulate JPEG, CR2, NEF, ARF, CRW & CIFF EXIF timestamps at will by setting them to specific times or batch adjusting them by adding and removing time (useful for correcting the timestamps of images taken with a digital camera with a incorrectly set clock and to compensate for timezone changes).

Correct Finder Sorting for Digital Photos

A Better Finder Attributes 5 also allows you to synchronize the file creation and modification dates with the shooting dates of JPEG EXIF as well as a wide variety of RAW formats, so that files sort properly in the Finder and other systems.

Total File and Folder Creation and Modification Date Control

A Better Finder Attributes 5 gives you total control over file creation and modification dates, setting them to specific times and dates, adding or removing time or simply removing them altogether.

 


 

More File Magic

On top of these features, A Better Finder Attributes 5 gives you control over:

  • whether or not file extensions appear in the Finder
  • batch locking or unlocking of files
  • setting or removing legacy creator & type codes
  • removing invisible files
  • seeing invisible files in the Finder
  • batch setting of Finder labels
  • forcing the Finder to update its information about files and folders

A Better Finder Attributes 5 features an elegant and intuitive interface with many advanced features. Simply drag & drop the files you want to change into the file list, select an action from the popup menu and modify the settings to your liking, then click on "Perform Changes".

Automate with Droplets

A Better Finder Attributes 5 allows you to save frequently used settings to separate "droplet" applications. Drag & drop files onto the droplet application to apply the changes stored in it. Double click the droplet to edit the stored settings.

Other Noteworthy Features

  • batch operation
  • drag & drop into the file list or onto the application icon
  • select files in the Finder and activate A Better Finder Attributes 5 via the Finder context menu or via a hot key
  • automatically deals with file date consistency rules
  • separate processing for files and folders, batch processing of sub-folders

Mac OS X Limitations on File Dates

Please note that Mac OS X imposes a number of "common sense" rules when it comes to file dates and will not allow you to set dates to "invalid" values.

In particular, you cannot set the dates to future values (i.e. later than now) and files cannot be modified before they are created. A Better Finder Attributes 5 can automatically take care of these complications for you via the "automatically correct inconsistent dates" feature.

Also note that while A Better Finder Attributes will let you set dates before 1972, the Mac OS X Finder does not "like" such dates and as soon as you point the Finder to such a file, it will "correct" this date to the 1st of January 1972.

System Requirements: Mac OSX 10.7 or later.

WindowClipMBI is a menu bar app that takes single shots and composite shots of windows, including menus and tool tips, of any other app to the clipboard. The app is conveniently accessible from the menu bar all the time, from any app. There is no need to remember numerous key combinations or search through layers of windows for generating multi-window shots.

What can WindowClipMBI do for me?

Displays thumbnails of all app windows.

The menu contains images of all current visible app windows, including menus and other auxiliary windows, like the menu bar, tool tips, Desktop and Dock. Simply select a menu item to take its picture and put it on the clipboard, optionally opening it in Preview also.

Scale, filter and reflect clips.

Clippings can be scaled, and special effects can be applied, such as converting to monochrome. Reflections can be added to each clipping, with various options.

Timed screen shots and composites.

Screen shots and “all windows” composites can be timed so you can set up the windows prior to capture. For screen shots, options for including the current mouse cursor or hiding the Desktop is available. Composites can be full screen or trimmed to the smallest bounding box. WindowClipMBi is also available from an app’s Services menu.

System Requirements: Mac OSX 10.5 or later. Mountain Lion Ready.

Developer Interview…

Hi, my name is Joe Pagliaro, and I am the founder of Limit Point Software. I have been developing Mac software for about 20 years, from System 7 to today’s Mac OS X Mountain Lion.

Now, we not only develop for the Mac, but of course also for the iOS platform. This is a very exciting time due to the growing synergy between the iOS and Mac platforms. I love developing for these platforms because there are so many possibilities and I am excited about the future products we will provide for them.

Now for questions and answers related to this product and the Mac.

  • What’s the most unique, useful feature of your product?

    The ability to list all apps that currently have visible windows in the easy to reach, ever present system menu bar menu and to preview each of those windows from within that menu and take their picture.

  • Why did you create this app? or What need were you trying to satisfy?

    I actually created this app for myself to take pictures of all my other app’s windows. I have written many apps and WindowClipMBI facilitates technical support, documentation and website creation for all my apps.

  • What is most interesting to you about developing SW for the Mac platform.?

    A great source of interest, and one of the best perks of being a Mac developer is attending the annual World Wide Developer Conference where all new things Mac are exhibited by the people who created them.

    Also interesting is the constant generation and evolution of an enormous amount of fun technologies and requisite hardware, including the close symbiotic relationship between the software and hardware.

    It is also interesting how Mac development is made possible by a complete set of many free development tools for building, testing and distributing apps.

  • What features should a prospective buyer look into during a trial of your product?

    One of the features I like most about WindowClipMBI is its ability to create timed composite shots of an app’s windows. But I also like the ability to create full screenshots that include the mouse cursor, whatever it may be at the time the shot is taken, and the integration of one of our other apps, Shade, which “cleans up” the desktop for lucid full screenshots.

  • What are some interesting experiences you’ve had creating new versions of your software when OS is upgraded?

    Through all the years I have been developing on the Mac I have been immensly impressed with how most products remain almost 100% reliable and stable across upgrades, even major version updates. For example, with Mountain Lion absolutely no modifications to any of our numerous products were needed for compatibility!

    OS upgrades have enabled us to enhance our apps in unexpected ways, or even create apps that would have been very difficult otherwise. For example, WindowClipMBI itself was easy to create because of a technology introduced in Mac OS 10.5 Leopard.

    With the introduction of Mac OS 10.6 Lion we took advantage of the opportunity to enhance and perfect almost all of our apps for inclusion in the new Mac App Store, and that has dramatically increased our success and excitement to be a Mac developer.

  • What’s your favorite Mac app out there from another developer? Why?

    My favorite app has been, for a very long time, Mathematica, by Wolfram Research. This is because I am a mathematician! Math is what I majored in at college and attended grad school for, and back then I used Mathematica a lot to aid in my course and research work.

  • What features would you like to add to your product that at this time seem improbable/impossible?

    To include the windows of apps on other machines on the local, or even remote, network. Less improbable/impossible: It would also be nice to be able to selectively include multiple windows from any and all apps, selected from a graphical list display.

  • What would you like a user to ask you?

    Will you always support this product for as long as possible? Answer: yes.

  • What should I ask that I’m forgetting?

    How long did it take for you to write this app? Answer: just a few days because of the development environment and the system software at my disposal. This is one of the great advantages of developing for Mac and iOS, speed and ease of development.

  • What are the answers to some common questions people have about your app before they buy?

    This is a very simple and straightforward app, so I do not get very many questions about it at all. One question that is interesting is the inquiry as to whether I will support other destinations of the snapshot, such as a file or an email message attachment. Answer: It is planned. Currently the output is the clipboard, and optionally a new document in Preview app.

User feedback is a huge asset to me, and I always encourage users to ask questions and offer suggestions for my products. I very frequently implement user suggestions. So if anyone has any questions or feedback during or after this promo, please send them to me at joe@limit-point.com. Thanks, and enjoy!

Customer Testimonials:

Saved me a boatload of time (4 stars)

I’m very happy with this find. I recently decided to cancel my backpack acct and transfer all of my 50+ pages to evernote. The manual process was killing me so I decided to try this app. I’m happy to report that out of the 50 or so pages I transferred, I only had one error (only have the page transferred). I’m guessing this little app saved me about 3+ hours. In my case, it was a one time use app since I don’t plan on creating or transferring over any new backpack pages.. but from a time-value standpoint… it was totally worth the $12.99. Oh and as an extra bonus, I received almost an immediate response from the developer when sent in a support email for the 1 page I was having trouble with. Great support!

Requires Mac OS X Lion

Developer Interview

1 What’s the most unique, useful feature of your product?

I think the most unique feature is the main feature of the product. If imports your Backpack data into Evernote.

2 Why did you create this product? or What need were you trying to satisfy?

37signals hasn’t shown Backpack a lot of love lately. In face, they’ve stopped taking new users. I thought there would be a demand to move that data to something else. Evernote seemed like it would be a popular target. Plus Evernote had this API and a contest as well.

3 What is most interesting to you about developing for the Mac platform.

I love the Cocoa APIs. I’ve been a fan of them since the NeXT days. I always wanted to use them and I finally had a chance when Apple bought NeXT. They are well designed and make you very productive.

4 What features should a prospective buyer look into during a trial of your product?

Basically, just look at how easy it is to move your data from Backpack to Evernote. As one customer said, it will save you a boat load of time.

6 What’s your favorite Mac product out there from another developer? Why?

I think I would have to say Things from Cultured Code. It looks great and it just works. Especially their cloud syncing they just released.

7 What features would you like to add to your product in the future?

I would like to add support for importing data into Evernote from other sources such as Basecamp and any other web service that makes sense. That’s something I’m waiting for feedback from potential customers.

    How many times have you tried to email a large file only to have it bounce?

    There is an easier way to send large files and you have just found it.

    FileChute makes sending files easy. Just drag a file and drop it on FileChute. FileChute puts the file on your Dropbox (or website) and generates a web link for retrieving the file all in one step. Next drag the generated link into your email and you’re set to go. And since what you’re sending is just a link, your recipients can retrieve the file from a Mac, a PC or any other platform.

    You can even drop multiple files or folders at once. FileChute automatically creates an archive in the format of your choice – it supports dmg, zip and tar – and sends the archive file.

    FileChute works with Dropbox or your own website that can be accessed using FTP or WebDAV. Perform the one-time set up by following the built-in Help.

    Here’s what our users say…

    Dan Frakes – “…and if you frequently send larger files to others across the Internet, it’s the easiest solution I’ve seen…”

    Mac|Life magazine says, “FileChute makes sharing files online cut-and-paste easy.”

    gulliver on VersionTracker:”I just tried this out last night,
    and I am so hooked. Rarely have I seen such a perfect little app,
    I can’t think of what could be improved.”

    sinemacula on VersionTracker:”Very nice little app – does what it says and does it well. I particularly like the built-in ability to get a short download url via snipurl – very cool indeed!”

    A macZOT Developer Interview with Jay Teo – Creator of FileChute and Folder Brander.

    Jay Teo at Yellow Mug Software Worldwide Headquarters

    1 What’s the most unique, useful feature of FileChute?

    Drag-n-drop simplicity.

    2 Why did you create this app? or What need were you trying to satisfy?

    Like many indie developers, I created FileChute initially to scratch an itch. I wanted a way to send large files in as few steps as possible. For example, if the “file” is really a folder, I want the app to automatically zip it for me before sending. If the resulting link is long and unwieldy, I want the app to automatically obtain a short redirection link for me. Basically, I wanted to be able to drag-n-drop what I want to send and be done with it.

    I didn’t (and still don’t) like web-based solutions or solutions that require my recipients to install special software (who wants to install yet another app just to receive a file from someone? That’s nuts!).

    So I created FileChute. It turns out my itch is shared by enough Mac users that FileChute is now one of my best-selling apps.

    3 What is most interesting to you about developing SW for the Mac platform.

    One thing I find interesting is the level of misconception regarding Mac software development. Every now and then, someone would ask me something to the effect of, “Isn’t it hard to develop for the Mac since Apple is so secretive and hates third-party developers?”.

    Nothing can be further from the truth. Apple is secretive, but only with regards to future products. As a development platform, the Mac is really very “open” in the sense that the development tools are free and frameworks are well documented. Another neat thing is that, being UNIX based, Mac OS X is able to leverage lots of open technologies. For example, I’m currently working on adding SFTP support to FileChute. And I’m doing so using Ruby, an open source scripting language.

    4 What features should a prospective buyer look into during a trial of your product?

    FileChute is really simple from the user’s perspective. Drag, drop, send the link. :-)

    5 What are some interesting experiences you’ve had creating new versions of your software when OS is upgraded?

    Things broke. Users complained. Developer (yours truly) stayed up all night fixing bugs. New version released. Users happy once again. Profit!

    6 What’s your favorite Mac app out there from another developer? Why?

    I have many favorites. Here are three I use many times a day: Quicksilver, TextExpander and 1Password.

    I’d be lost without Quicksilver. I’d still be on question 4 without TextExpander. And without 1Password, my head would hurt from all the random strings (you do use random strings for passwords, don’t you?) I’d need to remember.

    7 What features would you like to add to your product that at this time seem improbable/impossible?

    The “Cure Cancer” button has been on my to-do list forever. I’ll get to that once I’m done implementing the Stop Global Warming feature. Stay tuned.

    Thanks Jay!

    With your busy routine and a large number of new email in the inbox every day, it is difficult but essentially critical to take control of your inbox. You have to have a process to keep your email organized and inbox clean so that you can find a message when you need it. At the same time, you also need to make sure that you archive and backup your email to prevent the loss in situations like accidental loss of data from email servers, hacking of account, forget password, over size inbox or unpredictable scenarios.
    There are five basic functions that we all need to perform in order to manage and safeguard our email- backup, restore, archive, transfer and organize the data. Beyond Inbox can help you perform all of these in a very efficient and easy way.

    What does Beyond Inbox do?

  • Backup your email for Disaster Recovery.
  • Archive your email.
  • Organize your inbox.
  • Transfer your email to another account.
  • Restore your email
  • You can accidentally delete an email or your password can be compromised and web based email providers will not recover those emails for you. You need your own email backup.

    Beyond Inbox is the easy way to backup, archive, organize, transfer, and restore your email messages from any IMAP-enabled email client! With Beyond Inbox, you’ll never have to worry about falling victim to lost or corrupted email servers, hacked accounts, even forgotten passwords!

    Why do you need to backup your email?

  • You may forget your password
  • You may accidentally delete some messages
  • Automatic loss of email
  • Your account may be hacked
  • Blackout of Email servers
  • Upper limit on data storage
  • Backing up your email from one or many accounts is absurdly simple with Beyond Inbox. Backup your emails to another email account or store them on your computer’s hard drive as individual files in a non-proprietary open format. Best of all, if you choose to backup to your computer, you can easily search for specific information using Desktop Search, no matter which account it originated from!

    Restoring your email messages in the event of a disaster is quick and easy, thanks to Beyond Inbox’s wonderful Drag and Drop Restore functionality — just drag your selected messages back to your IMAP account, and you’re good to go!

    What about those emails that you want to keep, but aren’t necessarily critically important? Stop clogging up valuable inbox space, and instead use Beyond Inbox to archive them, in the same way you perform email backups!

    For categorization purposes, nothing beats Beyond Inbox! Just search and tag selected email messages (such as payment confirmations), then either copy or move these messages to a different email account or file folder.

    Why to backup with Beyond Inbox?

    There are many email services like Outlook Express, which themselves provide options for email backup. There are also a few software tools available in the market that claim to backup your email. These are the advantages of using Beyond Inbox for email backups:

    No more single large backup file for entire inbox. Beyond Inbox stores each and every email as a separate file: This way you can store different email at different places and you do not need to worry about backing up one large file. Most of the other backup services store all your emails in a single file causing one huge back up file for entire account.
    Much safer backups. No risk of deleting email from backup while deleting from inbox. Beyond Inbox does not work in synch mode: Once you back up your data on your local disk using Beyond Inbox, it is not at all linked with the email account. Most of the email backup services work in sync mode however, and hence, when an email is deleted from the email account, it is deleted from the backup also. This is a very big advantage that Beyond Inbox offers over its competitors.

    That beautiful 27 inch screen has one drawback: that mouse pointer is much harder to locate. PinPoint places an image of your choice around it, animated or not, to make it easy to find. Doing precision work? full-screen crosshairs make it easy to spot on multiple monitors too! Suble, pulsing organic graphics or exhuberant, funny animations, whatever your taste, PinPoint certainly has an option to please you.

    Scenario: An unobtrusive tool which launches AppleScripts when certain events occur.

    ★★★★★
    I have it set to lower my computer screen brightness to zero and start playing a certain iTunes Playlist at a certain volume once the specified Hot keys.. when I’m ready to go to bed. For the idle command, I have it set to pause iTunes when the computer becomes idle after a certain amount of time. And then, brings the brightness of the screen and the volume back up once the idle ends.
    That requires a little bit of Applescript knowledge, but it’s nothing you can’t just Google and find out.
    -Ruthlin Zephyr

    Leave your Mac for a while and set your iChat/Messages status automatically. Need to eject volumes when not in use? Make something happen when you wake your Mac or every time you log in? Build the AppleScript and let Scenario launch it for you when required. If you like to customize your Mac and love AppleScript, show Scenario some love too!

    macZOT Developer Interview with Renaud Boisjoly

    Lagente Software, Based in Montreal, Quebec

    1 What’s the most unique, useful feature of your product?

    For PinPoint, users really enjoy the animated properties of some of the pointers, like Pulsing Circle with Click Wave. But the most unique is probably the Full Screen Crosshairs which can span multiple monitors. Each user has their own favorite, so I guess flexibility is the preferred feature?


    2 Why did you create these apps? or What need were you trying to satisfy?

    Years ago, a friend of mine was using 6 monitors for trading Stocks and was always losing his mouse pointer on all that screen real estate. PinPoint was the solution to that problem and over time, as it became more popular, users send in requests and we simply implemented one after the other. It also became a presentation tool so we enhanced it for that more and more, adding the ability to display keystrokes for example.

    For Scenario, being MacBook users we needed a way to prompt us when waking our Macs to remember to set our iChat message appropriately. AppleScript would allow us to set this, but being bird-brained, we always forgot to launch the script. Scenario now takes over and asks us where we are and sets the status accordingly. If you are well-versed in AppleScript, you can even deduce where you are using many tricks like the IP address you get from your provider for example and set the location accordingly.

    3 What is most interesting to you about developing SW for the Mac platform.

    Really, the Mac and Cocoa would allow developers to focus on the need to fulfill and less on the complexity of the programming environment. The genius in Apple’s strategy was to leverage NextStep which was already an amazing development environment which made it a lot easier to learn how to program and offer great solutions in less time. Leveraging all this again for the iPhone is another fantastic coup!

    4 What features should a prospective buyer look into during a trial of your product?
    Most people buy a piece of software to fulfill one precise need. With PinPoint, they discover new uses as well. For example, one user bought it because they wanted a way to visually locate their pointer on screen, but discovered that by installing it on their customer’s Macs, and activating the ” Show Keystrokes ” feature, users they were helping would also see which keys they were pressing during a remote connection and learn from this.

    5 What are somxe interesting experiences you’ve had creating new versions of your software when OS is upgraded?

    Well, moving to the Mac App Store was one change which forced us to reconsider the whole interface. We cleaned up many things in the UI. But it got us thinking of our next version… and how to really take advantage of the new technologies in Mac OS X. Stay tuned, we want to make it exciting!

    6 What’s your favorite Mac app out there from another developer? Why?

    Anything that makes us productive and creative really excites us. We have a few faves. Acorn for graphics work is something we use every day. Fast, simple efficient. Love it. Omni Outliner to jot down and organize our ideas, Mac and iPad versions. We use it everywhere, even in the car (my wife likes to drive, don’t worry). Keynote and Pages for presos and documents, Crashplan for backups, wow, the list never ends! Twitterrific, FileMaker Pro, 1Password, all awesome! Oh, and our favorite coding tool? This is really great… PaintCode! If you like drawing shapes in code in your Apps, this tool is more than a must! But you need to be a developer to appreciate it :-)

    7 What features would you like to add to your product that at this time seem improbable/impossible?
    Ah, the Holy Grail of pointer enhancement is to be able to completely hide the Mac’s pointer. Simply not possible on the Mac at this time and the most-requested feature. We tried many things and some users use a tool call Cursorcerer to do this, but that tool would not be approved on the Mac App Store we think. No way around this… so we focus on enhancing the existing pointer as much as we can.

    But for our next version of PinPoint… we’re looking into neat neat stuff. Stay tuned, we need some encouragement as this will take some time as it is a total re-write. Faster, leaner, beautiful-er…

    8 What would you like a user to ask you?
    We just love getting feature requests from our users. It gives us goals to strive for. Any very useful feature we love hearing about.

    9 What should I ask that I’m forgetting?
    What are the best bagels out there? I’d have to answer either St-Viateur or Fairmount… Montreal Bagels yeah!

    10 What are the answers to some common questions people have about your app before they buy?
    People buying PinPoint don’t ask too many questions beforehand. They see the value to them and they ask enhancements later sometimes. For Scenario, we do get a few questions before as it is a more technical tool. Users will ask how to solve a specific problem and we let them know if we think it is possible and if Scenario will help them. We love challenges.

    More Testimonials:

    PinPoint:

    ★★★★★
    I run a pretty custom setup. Mac Pro/Imac with 5 x 27″ monitors. I am prone to lose my pointer often. I use the full screen cross hairs on both machines, this allows me to find my mouse when it is lost. – Guy Denton

    Scenario:

    ★★★★★
    I use Scenario on demo computers at a retail store. It’s great to be able to run an application quit-script when the screen saver comes on so that when a new customer comes to the computer all the previous applications are closed and it’s ready for a new demo. It has been a great addition to our toolbox of apps for our technicians as well. Lagente has great customer support as well! This app is a must have! – Chase Thompson-Baugh
